This one is a little more on the personal side, with less reference to the social, economic and political issues that Camilleri usually brings to his work. Our beloved inspector is now just two years short of sixty, and as in the last few books, he continues to muse about aging and growing older throughout the nove like a 3.
Our beloved inspector is now just two years short of sixty, and as in the last few books, canilleri continues to muse about aging and growing older throughout the novel. He’s still with long-time girlfriend Livia, and as the story opens, she is at Marinella with him for a few days. As he’s worrying about someone ik Carlo she mentioned while talking in her sleep, and getting more upset by the moment, he is called to the scene of an odd burglary.
The couple that was robbed had been at their seaside home, where they’d awakened at six a. Among a long list of valuables taken from the seaside house, the thieves stole their car and then proceeded to rob their regular residence. The only people who knew that the couple were going to be away were fifteen of their friends.
As things turn out, there had been another burglary, “an exact duplicate,” just three days earlier – and it isn’t too long before the same thing happens again. When Montalbano is called out on yet another, he meets the titular and beautiful Angelica, the victim and also the “spitting image” of a woman he used to lust over as a teen in Dore’s illustrations of Ludovico Ariosto’s work Orlando Furiosio, a “poem about war and love and the romantic ideal of chivalry.
But even while he’s mentally and physically lusting after his Angelica, as well as playing the role of her rescuer, there is sorris a number of crimes to solve — including a murder — and as an added distraction, the mastermind of the crimes is taunting the police.
And of course, there’s Livia. While it’s pretty funny to see Montalbano as a loopy, lovesick puppy completely smitten by this reincarnation of his teenage fantasies, and while Camilleri continues his long-standing tradition of inserting colorful characters into the angelic, let me offer a word of warning here as far as the crime solving goes.
I made the huge mistake of going to Sartarelli’s notes in the back re the poem Orlando Furioso a natural inclinationand twigged the entire plot all at once.
Not the why of it, mind you, but trust me – if you read carefully, it’s all there metaphorically speaking. I figured out much more than I should have at an early stage, and ended up being disappointed, an adjective I don’t generally use when it comes to this series of books. And then there’s this: I’m wondering if the author is getting a little tired — this book angelida didn’t seem to have the same oomph as his earlier Montalbano adventures that have been so lively up to this point.
Still, it’s a fun read, and in that vein I have to say that I probably haven’t had so ill good laughs with any other crime fiction series as I have with this one.
Like I’ve said before, you don’t read Camilleri’s novels for the crime — it’s all about the characters. View all 9 comments. Angelica’s Smile is a contemporary crime novel that reads like a classic. Few are the elements that betray the time the plot takes place.

It’s not too good, not too bad. The prose is stripped of unnecessary descriptions and sticks to the point. Personally, I didn’t mind since I found it suitable to the story.
Development-wise, it’s more or less flawless. The plot unravels in a flowing manner and the mystery is quite interesting. What I felt it lacked, was that little something that would allow t Angelica’s Smile is a contemporary crime novel that reads like a classic. What I felt it lacked, was that little something that would allow the story to take off and carry you with it. It actually never left the ground and remained a decent, if a bit flat novel.
In the novel Thrones, Dominationsjointly penned by the late Dorothy L. At 58, Montalbano is feeling his age. For years, he has been faithful to his long-distance girlfriend Livia. But lately Montalbano has been much less — shall we say? Through the robberies, he meets the extremely beautiful and blonde Angelica Cosulich, who leaves Montalbano sorely tempted.
Will Montalbano stay true? This interesting subplot provides yet another glimpse into the complicated police inspector. View all 6 comments. The difference between the small screen and his books is the richness in the prose, the imagery of the beauty of Sicily oh and the food.
Is it just me that likes to eat like Montalabano, the only thing the book does not have is the smells as it has everything else. We are treated to Montalabano at his best; contemptuous of his colleagues and Italian bureaucracy and plagued by bumbling Catarella, but dogged and determined to investigate the crimes while falling in lust with the beautiful Angelica Cosulich a victim of one of the crimes.
He finds that their other house as well as their Vigata house has been burgled and a list of expensive objects has been taken. One of the victims Angelica Cosulich is a beautiful woman who manages to dazzle Montalabano and make him feel young once again. During the course of the investigation Montalabano is sure there is a connection between all the members of the elite that are being broken in to but he cannot see the link. Once he sees the link he is able to solve the burglaries and bring the book to its conclusion.
There is none of the violence that one would normally associate with Sicily and their families who usually only ever remain nothing more than footnotes in the series. Even in a mystery novel we are treated to the beauty and depths of Sicily with which you want to visit and eat. There is humour on every page even when there is despair which is resplendent in Sicily. The Montalabano series is an evocative story of Sicily and its tortured past and present and Camilleri is the narrator who brings this to life.
Stunning, wonderful and beautiful. The silver lining of reduced mobility of a painful back condition is the need to sit upright and rest up which allows me to read.
No better book to read than an Inspector Angeloca mystery. Angelica’s Smile is the seventeenth in the series that remains strong and original addressing crime in modern day Sicily. The detective shares many of my traits. A love of food,a delight in books and the need for a coffee in the morning.
He is of a similar age and is thinking about his advancing years and fut The silver lining of reduced mobility of a painful back condition is the need to sit upright and rest up which allows me to read. He is of a similar age and is thinking about his advancing years and future retirement. Where we differ is clearer for others to see; I andrez that he is more desirable to women, but in my defense he is Italian.
This is a cracking good book where a mastermind appears to be getting the better of Montalbano through anndrea series of burglaries which leave him clueless and in danger of public ridicule, hence caamilleri thoughts of retirement. However, in the course of the investigation he meets an attractive woman. She seems initially to make him regress to a besotted teenager and the story is about his struggle to understand himself as much as it is to solve the crime.
This insight by Andrea Camilleri into his main character is what gives this set of books their humanity and eorriso edge. Sufficient to take you out of your own reality and into a world where you taste the food and feel the chill of the sea as the Inspector dives into the water. The greatest compliment I can pay these camiller is that where they have been translated into a TV series; the episode of this story is so faithful to its original format that you wonder what came first.
The fact is, the writing is so vivid and imaginative that the words form pictures that last long after the final page.
Perfino il linguaggio caratteristico di questi romanzi, che tanto risultava vivace e innovativo nelle sue prime camillei, qui si rivela stanco, vuoto, quasi un patetico espediente virtuosistico volto a mascherare la sostanziale inconsistenza dell’insieme.
Per non parlare della forzatura delle citazioni dall’Orlando furioso, quanto mai artificiose e raffazzonate con l’unico scopo di inventare un nobile pretesto per una storia insulsa. This entry in the series had aangelica bit less about Montalbano’s food which was a shame as I love that part. However, I thought that the mystery part was not one of Camilleri’s better efforts.
